"Some Good Done" by Jennifer Lisa Vest

Oooh, I found a something nice. A beautiful poem by Jennifer Lisa Vest. In times of communal one-dropping there should always be at least one wicked mind to simply speak his/her own personal reality. Go challenge that!

Some Good Done
 Jennifer Lisa Vest

Biologically I am
A mixture More and less
Complicated than I claim to be

My mother my father they
Have their own identities
My phenotype is another story

Where I grew up and how
Who my ancestors were
And why they died
All conspire to define me
In ways that are beyond even me.

Ambiguity is my home
Either/or does not apply
And my existence defies
So many names and claims
Of place
It would be a lie to check a race

All I know for certain
Is that it matters
That my existence
Confounds you
That your inability to classify me
Bewilders you
And there is some good done
Each time I cause confusion
There is some good done
